Round the Island Race

30th June 2012

The world's largest single yacht race is held annually, with boats of all shapes and sizes competing on handicap in this anti-clockwise race around the Isle of Wight.  In recent years, there have been over 1600 boats and over 12,000 competitors.  The race around the sixty mile coastline offers many opportunities for spectators to view the yachts close at hand, especially around the Needles and south coast.
